Here is a fine quality antique English Victorian mahogany upholstered chaise longue, circa 1860, in very good condition. The chaise features (when facing) a right-hand raised sweeping upholstered arm. The moulded back frame, which is also upholstered, sweeps down and terminates below on the sprung stuff-over seat, with a ruched and piped bolster cushion. The chaise boasts a sweeping carved fascia to the front of the arm, with a reeded moulding to the rest of the frame. The arm and backrest are solid in joint. The chaise has been newly upholstered in top quality cream and pale gold structured damask upholstery, incorporating a floral pattern, finished with matching braiding. The stuff over seat has been professionally sprung and is in good condition. The seat is firm but comfortable to sit on; you do not sink into the chaise. The underside of the chaise has been traditionally upholstered in hessian backing material. The chaise stands on its original fluted baluster mahogany legs and boasts the original brown porcelain castors, which are all in good condition too.
This chaise features a rich dark brown mahogany colour. It has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the living room or bedroom. The item would certainly grace any home or office and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional.
